New Article: Walter Greenwood Court

From 1964 till 2004, there was a practical monument to Greenwood’s work in exposing the appalling living conditions he and thousands of others endured in Salford in the first half of the twentieth century: the high-rise building Walter Greenwood Court, built to replace the slums of Hanky Park. In its turn, what seemed a great improvement fell into disrepair and decay, perhaps a result of continuing poor social conditions as much as of architectural design and urban planning. This article gives an account of what Walter Greenwood Court symbolised during the three and a half decades for which it stood as part of the new housing of Hanky Park.
